Botham Jean's family speaks about their search for answers 'The hardest day for us is Sunday morning,' said Bertrum Jean, Botham's father.

A Dallas County jury hears evidence Monday against a Dallas police officer who shot and killed a 26-year accountant in his own home while he was watching a football game. Amber Guyger, 30, was arrested on a manslaughter charge Sept. 9, three days after killing 26-year-old Botham Jean. She told authorities that she mistook his apartment for hers on the night of Sept. 6 and thought he was a burglar.

Jean came to the United States for college at Harding University in Arkansas and then worked in Dallas as an accountant. He planned to one day return to the Caribbean island and run for prime minister. 

A charge of murder is punishable for up to life in prison, and a charge of manslaughter could come with a penalty of up to 20 years in prison.
